Rocky Trail Entertainment will return to Daisy Hill MTB Park with a re-launch of one of their flagship cross-country endurance racing series in QLD.
The new Shimano Grand Prix racing format changed from the traditional time-based endurance racing format to a lap-race with three distance options. The event is supported by Logan City Council and endorsed by the local RATS mountain bike Club and is expected to attract 150-200 competitors. The race is part of a series with events across NSW, ACT, QLD and VIC. Each race will offer distance challenges that are completely tailored to the individual race.
